Map of Büsum


  • 1 Büsum Lighthouse. Painted in the German red-white stripes that lighthouses are "supposed to have" according to popular imagination    
  • 2 Rathaus Büsum (City Hall). A pleasant brick building  
  • 3 Museum am Meer. Among other things this museum deals with anything related to Krabben  
  • 4 Museumshafen Büsum. Displaying several old and historic ships and boats.  
  • 5 St. Clemens church. This brick church is surprisingly ornate on the inside for the usually rather subdued Lutheran churches  


  • 1 Phänomania, Dr.-Martin-Bahr-Straße 7, +49 48 34 - 96 55 17, . During the summer season 10:00-18:00 daily. A science museum where you can test out countless experiments yourself. A good place to take the kids on a rainy day or to let out your own "inner child". Adult 9.50 €.



Büsum is famous for Krabben (Crangon crangon) caught in the sea and landed here and you can certainly by the right off the boat (they are cooked on the boat to avoid spoilage, but you'll have to remove the exoskeleton yourself).



  • Schlafstrandkorb. One of the more unique types of accommodation are the "Schlafstrandkörbe" which are derived from a Strandkorb, an elaborate mobile shelter that is a quintessential part of German beach vacations. They are rather small however. This Youtube video shows you what to expect. From 49€ per unit.
